Black Powder American Civil War Battle Report

The Story
A detachment of two Union Infantry Brigades, and some accompanying Cavalry, is ordered to return with all possible speed to meet up with the main body of their army. They march almost non-stop, with very little food or sleep. Through skillful maneuvering, a small force of Confederates has managed to get behind the Union detachment and deploy between them and their destination. Hungry and exhausted, the Union soldiers come upon the Confederates. They outnumber the enemy, but are already in bad shape. Nevertheless, they have no choice but to fight their way through the enemy to meet back up with their army.

GHQ Painted 10mm General Stonewall Jackson

This is just a quick post to show off some pictures of my completed 10mm GHQ Brigadier General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. This command stand will be for my Confederate Stonewall infantry brigade, which I'm currently working on painting up.

GHQ Painted 10mm Confederate Rockbridge Artillery Battery

I completed my version of the Rockbridge Artillery Battery, which was part of the Stonewall brigade of infantry, for my 10mm Confederate army. It originally contained cannons taken from the Virginia Military Institute, which had gun carriages painted red. They were probably quickly repainted, but I've portrayed them red to add a little variety and make this battery stand out more on the table.
